This poster is a great resource. I hope my year 10s will print it off and put it up on their bedroom wall to revise for the exam in June!

Stem cells exist naturally in the body to replace damaged cells and tissues. Research into stem cells could allow:
- the development of a treatment that allows people paralysed because of spinal injuries to walk again
- the possiblility of growing replacement organs that are matched to the patient
- genetic disorders to be studied and new drugs to treat them tested
None of these are readily available yet - but trials are underway to investigate whether they are possible.
